Very occasionally we’ve checked out the contents of Akismet’s SPAM ‘recepticle’ : it’s always been full of those tedious and ridiculous spam comments, and none of those have ever got through to our published pages and posts, we’ve assumed it’s been doing an excellent job – and generally left it to get on with it.
Today, however, J was taking a quick peek, and was surprised to find, on the first two pages of spam, four comments from two WordPress bloggers who most regularly comment on our posts. It was difficult to understand why they had been marked as spam, as they contained no links.
Fortunately we were able to approve these falsely accused comments, but we will now be checking Akismet more frequently. We can only wonder how many good comments we may have missed.
